The awards, which are supported by headline sponsor Markel, recognise the achievements of charities, social enterprises and the companies that support them. There are 24 categories this year, including Rising Chief Executive, Fundraising Team of the Year, Brand Development and Digital Innovation of the Year.
Shortlisted nominations for Chief Executive of the Year include Ruth Hunt, who steps back from her role at Stonewall next month, Clic Sargent’s Kate Lee, Launchpad Reading’s Ian Caren and Stephen Hale of Refugee Action.
Emily Burt, deputy editor of Third Sector, said: "The standard of entries was exceptionally high this year. It’s great to see such a diverse collection of charities in the mix. We wish you all the best of luck on the awards night."
The winners will be announced at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square on 19 September.
